Mechanical and Thermal Properties of Poly Lactic Acid (PLA) Nanofibers :
Project Description: PLA Nanofiber is biodegradable material and useful in biomedical applications. However, PLA nanofibers are weak in mechanical strength. Several efforts are on the way to improve mechanical strength of PLA. With the reinforcement of thermoplastic nanofiber, the goal of this project is to evaluate mechanical strength of PLA using poly-Imide in a form of composite blend.
Mechanical and Thermal Properties of Poly Acrylo Nitrile (PAN) Nanofibers :
Development of Rice Husk Ash for Advanced Polymer Composites:
Project Description: This project aims at extracting Pure and Pozzolanic Silica from Rice Husk and apply into both brittle and ductile polymer. This silica is expected to increase some mechanical and thermal properties of the base polymers including thermoset and Geopolymer.
Study of Phase Separation and Crystallization of Li-Si glass:
Project Description: This project concerns the phase separation and crystallization behavior of Lithium Di-silicate glass at a little over stoichiometric Si:Li Ratio (2.33). The objective of this research is to improve the mechanical strength and thermal stability of Lithium- Silicate glass system.
Development of High Temperature Composite Materials:
Project Description: The goal of this project is to develop high composites for railroad tunnel and Subterranean structures.
Development of prosthetic devices using composite materials:
Project Description: Design and develop composites for medical devices and prosthetic as per FDA and NIH guidelines.
